Publisher Description

A slow burn friends-to-lovers romance!


Friends with benefits isn’t a real thing. Nope. Once you cross the line, that friendship is over. Ask me how I know. So I’m keeping my head down, focused on getting into medical school and ultimately working to find the cure for cancer. I want my life to mean something, to give back something significant to the world. Guys are a distraction I can’t afford.


From the moment I met Chloe Travers, a protective streak I never knew I had took over. Despite my raging lust, I kept her at arm’s length. We have a family connection, which means casually hooking up is out. Too much potential fallout and awkward future encounters.

And then she moves in next door for the summer. Awkward? More like the ultimate test of my willpower. We’re spending every spare moment together as friends, and it’s driving me insane. I want to cross that line, but what if I make a move and lose her?

This romantic comedy stands alone with a swoonworthy happily-ever-after! No cliffhangers.

Slow Burn Swoony Goodness

I’ve got heart eyes for this slow-burn romance. I am not usually one for this trope but Kylie made me a fan. I was invested in Brendan and Chloe’s story from the word go. Brendan is from the Brooklyn Rourke’s and is on Villroy for his cousin’s wedding and meets Chloe when she uses his room as an escape from palace security. (Loved that meet cute.) In the beginning, their relationship was not an easy one. They denied themselves a lot when it came to their relationship. It was almost heart breaking.

Chloe is related to the Rourke’s by marriage. Her sister Sara is married to Adrian Rourke, a prince from Villroy. Their parents died in a car accident when she was young. This lost left her emotionally stunted, incapable of feelings of love. Now as a young woman, her focus is succeeding in college and her career so she would no longer feel like a burden to her older sister. She pretty much put herself in a stuck in the no fun zone. When she meets Brendan, she is instantly intrigued. She saw someone who knows how to have fun. Living life with a fun devil may care attitude. Hanging out one night, she lets her hair down and makes a pass at Brendan. Because of family obligations, Brendan holds back his feelings for Chloe sending mixed signals and playing on her insecurities. This would be something he would regret. Fast forward five years and she finds herself as Brendan’s neighbor in Brooklyn. This time he won’t let her get away.

I loved their story. How Brendan did all he could to get Chloe to let down her guard. It was so swoon worthy. Seeing Chloe go from conservative and serious to playful and fun while still focusing on her goals was great to see. I really wanted to see her get the guy.

A great couple. A great story. One-click now.

Devilishly good

Chloe and Brendan were the perfect mix - clueless and smart, fun and serious. This was definitely a slow burn romance, but the end result was explosive. They didn’t make a big deal of the age gap which was refreshing. Cannot wait for the next one!

Love this book

I am a fan Kylie Gilmore. The series Rogue Royals is beautifully written and Rogue Devil is everything you want to believe about a royal. Brendan and Chloe are strong independent characters with honor, and family important in their lives. I enjoyed reading about Brendan and Chloe love story and Brendan determination to love Chloe. I highly recommend reading this book and all of the Rogue Royals books. I received this book as an arc for an honest review of it.
